I want that nonexistent Ninja Turtle Batman game they led up to for apparently no reason.
It was leading to game creating in Spark.  Moynihan was creating his own game, essentially.  Of course, Turtles and Bats are not in Spark.  Only Conker.

First of all, they are the same genre.  Period.  Deus Ex and Doom are not as close (though Deus Ex is the same genre as I:SS and WD).  Being in first person and shooting at things doesn't do it.  Diablo and Baldur's Gate are closer, but Diablo adds an action element that separates it from a traditional RPG.

I'm honestly not sure why this is bugging you so much.

Because of stuff like the uppermost quote. These are your opinions, but you're presenting them as if they were fact.

Ha!  You'd better dial up the kettle on your speed dial about that one.

TiLT, this isn't anyone saying one is good, the other is not and passing it off as fact.

This is fact: both games are in the same genre. There is no inherent opinion here.  It's not a qualitative thing.

But they play nothing alike! Not even slightly! That's why I mentioned those crazy examples above. If you are very selective in how you distill them (Deus Ex and Doom: First person shooter. Baldur's Gate and Diablo: RPG) their genres stop having any meaning at all. Would you ever tell someone "if you like Infamous, you're going to like Watch Dogs", or vice versa? Of course not! It's not a valid comparison. The similarities between the two games are superficial at best. They both take place in an open world, but if that's a genre, then it's worthless as a way to describe the game, and what's the bloody point then?

Quote from: TiLT on June 09, 2014, 12:37:28 PM

What? Seriously? You're really going to argue that these two games are the same genre? I guess games like Deus Ex and Doom are the same genre too then, right? Or how about Baldur's Gate and Diablo. Totally the same thing, right? Or maybe the differences between them are just so small they don't matter?

*throws hands in air*

Knock yourselves out.

Secondly, to say they play nothing alike is ridiculous.  You've got a bee in your bonnet about this for some reason, which I don't understand, but they do have similarities.

No one is saying they're the same game.  I'm not flying around the city in WD.  I'm not shooting bolts at people.  But I am getting messages on my phone about things to do, getting there and doing them. I am shooting people. I do have to break into compounds and remove the threat within to unlock a section of the city.  I am in a world of oppression that I'm attempting to overcome.  As I do so, I am unlocking upgrades to what I can do.  Everyone in the world around me seems to be commenting increasingly frequently on my hero status.

I'm honestly not sure why this is bugging you so much.  They're not the same game.  They are similar in a lot of ways, though.  And they are the same genre.  Why is that a problem?

You're being a little crazy, TiLT.

Infamous and Watch Dogs are not vastly different games.  They're very definitely not different genres.  "Open world action adventure" covers it.  

The differences are in the flavor (and a morality system, maybe).  But you're still going around a city, sector by sector, opening things up, finding collectibles, unlocking skills and progressing the story as the mood suits you.

This game is nothing like Infamous though, so that's not really a good comparison when talking about quality. Watch Dogs is far more ambitious in what it's trying to do, while Infamous could focus on perfecting its core gameplay to a much larger degree.

I find the comparison valid.  Ambitious due to the hacking element?  Infamous is technically superior.

They are completely different genres!

What genres are they?!




Sent from my mobile device

Well, according to Wikipedia, Infamous: 2nd Son is an an open world, action-adventure video game.  Whereas Watch Dogs is an open world action-adventure stealth video game.

Completely different.

This lack of anything can only mean one of two things:  A) Lots of "available...right now!" announcements at E3, or 2) everyone is too busy to put any damned games out this week.

I will also be waiting for reviews of Enemy Front, but I liked the video I saw.

The article is great: Ever Wished That Calvin and Hobbes Creator Bill Watterson Would Return to the Comics Page? Well, He Just Did.

There are links to the strips in the article.  They're getting hammered right now, so instead of cluttering this page with a bunch of Xs, you can find them within.

Quote from: Bullwinkle on June 05, 2014, 06:07:03 PM

Personally, I think the video is great.  I'm actually not sure why others think otherwise (although the genitalia view is brilliant).  It seems like a string of real reactions to a cool product that I'm now curious to try.

For me it's because watching people's reaction to something, without hinting at what it is, comes across as over-hyped marketing. It doesn't get me excited to see whatever they are looking at nor does it give me any details of what it is that I should be excited about. You know the leaked info so you are excited, the average person who goes to Amazon and sees that play does not.

I think they should learn from Apple, just say they have something to announce and leave it at that. Of course I am not sure there are any other companies that can get away with that. Honestly, outside of some new fancy eInk reader, I don't have a lot of interest in what they release. Love Amazon the store, but the Kindle line doesn't even compare with Apples stuff IMO.

I liken it to when the Segway was teased.  It had been shown to a group of high-up people (Bezos was one, IIRC) and their reactions were similar in the giddiness, haven't seen this before kind of way.  We didn't see the reactions, of course, and there was talk about that device changing the way cities worked, so it got over-hyped.  Plus, it was something like a year before they told us what it actually was.  

Here, though, it's pretty obvious from that video that they're talking about a phone or something along those lines.  I do think most people would take away that whatever this is, it'll be a phone, most likely.  But the question will be: What's special about it that has these people intrigued?

Even if they didn't read about what that may be, there are hints in the video that still might give them the correct impression.  And even if they have no idea what it is, they only have to wait less than 2 weeks to find out.  That's not a bad tease at all.

Saw the video after reading this and it was hilarious!

So much better with that in mind.   icon_lol


Quote from: leo8877 on June 05, 2014, 02:29:35 PM


Didn't Amazon get the memo that Apple added in slight parallax effects and it caused people to lose their shit?  I expect nothing but a full failure for this device.

That was entirely different.  It was something added later and as such ate up processing speed.  If this is what they're describing, the hardware would be designed for it, taking the processing hit (and it seems it would use cameras to track your eyes instead of just tilt sensors).  Or who knows, this could be something entirely different than what's being guessed.

Personally, I think the video is great.  I'm actually not sure why others think otherwise (although the genitalia view is brilliant).  It seems like a string of real reactions to a cool product that I'm now curious to try.

I don't know how practically useful this will be.  It will probably just be a bell or whistle, but I can't imagine people being up in arms about it the way they were when something was added to their existing phones that made them less functional.

The normal cost was, like, $5.  It's free because they're promoting the second episode.

Check this video out: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2014/06/04/amazon_mystery_product_launch/

If you're not a click-througher: It shows people holding a device (just out of frame) and being surprised and amused by it.  THe number of whoa's and cool's in this teaser will make you think a new Matrix movie is coming.

The article attached says the smart money is on a holographic 3D phone.  Holographic 3D is something Bezos has been pursuing for a while, apparently.  This seems to be a step up from the 3DS (presumably because it'll jump out not fall in), in that the camera tracks your eyes and presents the right image as a result (no finding the sweet spot).

Personally, I'm glad I delayed a new phone, if only to see what this might be.  Even without the buzzy display, an Amazon phone has me intrigued.

I troll Gamestop every couple of days to check the reviews.  Every once in a while I might have clicked on an article or even a video if the subject matter interested me.  Over the past year or so (maybe it's been much longer; I've been trying to keep these simpering idiots out of my brainspace), the temptation to click has disappeared and a desire to run screaming from the site increases.  The images used to lead you to their videos are increasingly filled with the heads of their "personalities" instead of an image from the game or story that might actually interest you.  As though the hosts are the draw.  But, I ask you, are these jerks a draw?

From least to most egregious.

This first one is okay. She doesn't seem to be trying too hard.

Plus, in finding pics for this post, I discovered she can also look like this:
Spoiler for Hiden:

This guy makes me want to punch his high five.


Speaking of punching high fives, I really just want to mangle this one's hand.


At first, you might be fooled.  Thinking that she seems kinda cute.  Harmless.


But then you realize she uses the same vapid, fake-geek, borderline duck lip pose all the time.



Those eyes are empty.  And they look dead straight into the camera.  Dead straight into you.

But even that one is nothing compared to these buffoons.



Especially this guy.


Fuck him in particular.


Look at him.




Society is dead.

The speed of this one might make a difference in getting it to the table.  Speed in teaching, setup and play.  Seriously, first time out, you might get the whole thing done in half an hour.  45 minutes, tops.

Also, it's dirt cheap.  $10 most online stores.  Less than $20 at a FLGS.

I have a feeling that this is one of those games Microsft will eventually give to Gold for free, so I'll hold out for that

That may be the best path.  Both IGN (5/10) and Eurogamer (6/10) seem to say that it's really not very good (undercooked, stumbles), but that it has a certain charm that may overcome those hurdles.  And it seems to be shorter than I was expecting (10 hours, maybe).

All of that adds up to a game I might enjoy if I got it for free.
